    Curtain wall with disordered mullions

    in revit as default we can only make curtain walls with orthogonal horizontal and vertical mullions... now how can i make a disordered curtain wall. with slanted mullions that will result triangular panels...? thanx

    For generic curtain walls, I can mention these two options:

    Option 1) Curtain wall types have parameters for the grids, such as "angle", "offset", "justification". If you create different types of curtain walls with those parameters and then combine that with the ability to embed a curtain wall type as a panel into a host curtain wall, you could quickly create something like the example shown in the attached image.

    Option 2) It is possible to select a curtain wall panel and edit it in place, to create extrusions inside the panel to imitate the mullions (Credits to Mr. Stafford).

        Go into the properties of a mullion, you will see all the parameters Alfredo mentioned. Just be sure to duplicate/rename a mullion if you change one as it will affect all of them if you modify anything.

          You also should unpin the mullion, so this way you can change more easier those properties Alfredo mention, best regards.

            I never use curtain wall types....hence no unpinning necessary.

              I know how to reach the properties of the mullions but the problem is, the parameters mentioned by alfredo won't create any curtain wall similar to the one in alfredos image... by using the angle in the mullions edit type window, the mullions will rotate along there own axis and not like in alfredos image...! i don't get it?!

                I don't have Revit in front of me....but I seem to recall you can select and rotate a grid line...

                  Hi you should change this options, this way you can reach to creates several types of curtain walls, see image below, so, when you'll have enough types you can combine it until get's the design you want, best of lucks.
